Female Primacy: What is it, and What Role does it Play in our Society?

The role of women has often been misinterpreted and misrepresented in society. Every domain out there is gendered. Even today, women are expected to remain adherent to societally-constructed gender norms and expectations. All women are subject to criticism, especially when flouting the general rules of gendered expectations.

The only way to change those misogynistic, and often patriarchally defined ideologies, is to bring about a paradigm shift and transform the conventional, masculine norms with female primacy.

Female primacy is the ideology that aims to reverse the rules of patriarchy. It means that women come first, and placing woman-identifying groups at the top of the hierarchy, honoring them with the power that the Divine Feminine grants women intrinsically.

However, female primacy works on a different principle than feminism, so those two should not be misconstrued. Where feminism advocates for equal rights between men and women, female primacy functions differently. It is the objective of female primacy to place women in power at all levels of society.

Female primacy creates a structure in which women are the conquerors, have the upper hand, and creates an environment for all people to coexist, rather than be subjugated. If women are valued higher within the societal structure, by giving them back the power of their words, the respect they deserve as caretakers and life-bringers – the world would inherently become a better place to live in.

Female primacy does not aim to mimic the structure of the patriarchy. The Divine Feminine creates an entirely different system of values and structures, by cultivating independence and coupling it with softness, wisdom, and sensuality, while celebrating the power of feminine spirit.

A society built on the concept of female primacy will inevitably lead to breakthroughs in all aspects of life, with regard to the pioneer women that are often overlooked through history despite their contributions to science, mathematics, government, and language. The priority shift helps to create an understanding of the feminine energy as something powerful, rather than something to be ashamed of or dismissed due to antiquated belief systems.

Female primacy does make many people uncomfortable, but the truth in that is that change is often uncomfortable. While women have been subjugated and made powerless within the patriarchy, masculine energy has been prioritized, and with that has not come a revolutionary understanding of societal norms, nor expansive growth in human interaction. Female primacy proves that women can take the lead and end the oppression of many – not just those with substantial and long standing power. From this position, women can articulate the current system’s limitations and encourage inclusivity.

In the not-so-distant future, women will have more of a ruling say on the world stage. That has been evident in the many advances made by women in positions of power. In the future, men won’t feel oppressed by being second in a female-dominant society, as it is natural for women to take control, both inside the home and out. 

In the current system, women try to survive, and female energy is constantly blocked and suppressed. Female primacy will help to reverse the current systems of toxic masculinity, and help to unleash the divine power that was always there.

Woman-first and woman-led are the ideals of female primacy and by default, the Fusion Movement. They envision a place where women would feel safer and more confident to be in their bodies and stand up for themselves.

The keepers and carriers, mending each other, understanding each other, nourishing each other – that is what the future beholds.

Megan Thee Stallion and Ali Ciwanro: The Role of Women and Problems in Society

“We opened doors, but Megan came, kicked in the door, pulled up a chair at the table, ordered a big dinner and dumped hottie sauce all over it,” said rapper Pepa of Salt-N-Pepa, who presented her fellow rapper with the award. After Megan Thee Stallion released her “Something For Thee Hotties” mixtape in late October, marking her fourth top ten album, she was honored by women’s magazine Glamour as its 2021 Woman of the Year.

The rapper accepted the award with an emotional speech, dedicating it to all the women out there, “I’ve won many awards as Megan Thee Stallion, but I want to accept this one as Megan Pete, a soon-to-be college graduate, a woman who has managed to build a successful career in a male-dominated industry […].” She also talked about having to walk this path for the past two years without her mother and manager Holly Thomas, who passed away in 2019 due to a brain tumor, “I want to thank my mom because she made me the woman I am today. She’s my best friend, my manager, she was everything to me and I know she’s proud of me today.” Thereby Megan Thee Stallion is exactly the right woman for this award with her successes of the last years and her message.

While rappers like Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj paved the way for today’s generation of artists with their outspoken sexuality, the rise of intersectional feminism has allowed women like Megan to establish themselves as powerful icons. Tina Snow – as she also calls herself – is not only following in her footsteps, but beyond them: the rapper manages to address female sexuality without men playing a decisive role. On the contrary – Megan Thee Stallion presents them as replaceable, just as rappers have been doing with women for decades, only less disrespectfully. Megan doesn’t let anyone tell her anything. Since the beginning of her career, she has been criticized for permissiveness. The outfits are too skimpy, the lyrics too sexual and the dancing too raunchy. But as “The OG Hottie” herself says in her song “B.I.T.C.H.” – “it’s 2020 I ain’t finna argue ’bout twerkin'”.

Megan embodies exactly the feminism we need today. After Cardi B and her earned heavy criticism alongside praise for their collaborative track “WAP,” she commented to GQ in an interview, “Sometimes people don’t feel comfortable enough in their own skin and I don’t think they like seeing others comfortable or teaching others how to be comfortable in and with their bodies.” The rapper doesn’t care – she makes it her mission to help her listeners feel more confident through body positivity and self-determined lyrics.

Successful songwriter Ali Ciwanro also has a lot to say on the subject. He is not only considered very accomplished in his field, but also a great advocate for women’s rights.

Ali says the following about Megan Thee Stallion:

“Her music is somehow therapeutic after decades of “b*tches ain’t shit…” type lyrics. She’s aggressive, sexual, defiant AND feminine.”
